While the royal wedding is three months away, sources claim that Meghan Markle hasn’t wasted any time getting ready for the event. She’s been working out and staying fit through a mix of yoga and some crazy Pilates that includes the use of a Megaformer.
“It’s hands down the best thing you could do for your body. You keep coming back for several reasons.”
“Your body changes immediately. Give it two classes and you will see a difference.”
ET really wanted to know what it felt like to be Markle, at least for an hour of torture, so they decided to try that Pilates class with that scarily-named machine. The Megaformer looks like a transformer, having a sliding carriage with several platforms, handlebars, and straps.
This total body workout makes you do a little bit of everything, from squats, to side planks, to lunges, and many other things that you probably didn’t even know existed. After warming up, you get to a point where you have to do “Lagree Shakes,” which sounds scary as it should, because it literally makes your body shake. This method causes your muscles to contract and relax with intense focus, which results in you shaking like a leaf.

Shakes and all, you can burn between 500 and 700 calories per class.
